History of OANSince 1986 to OAN has grown to a membership of 41 agencies, creating one of the strongest health movements in Ontario.
In 1986, about a dozen AIDS Service Organizations recognized the need for information-sharing and peer support; thus, the Ontario AIDS Network was born.
For over 20 years, the OAN has evolved and grown to a membership of 41 agencies, creating one of the strongest health movements in Ontario.
The Ontario AIDS Network advocates for its member groups for sustainable funding, user-friendly legislation, and state-of-the-art treatment for all persons living with HIV/AIDS in the province. The OAN is a leader in the AIDS movement with representation on the Ontario Ministry of Health Advisory Committee on HIV/AIDS and the Ontario HIV Treatment Network.
The OAN gratefully acknowledges the Ontario Ministry of Health, AIDS Bureau and Health Canada’s AIDS Community Action Program for their ongoing funding. The OAN also gratefully acknowledges the support it receives from the Federated Health Campaign as well as members of the community throughout the province of Ontario.
